Terrible climate, but those dark green colours in the Pp lane look rather sexy, shall we agree?

Yes I know this is most people’s climactic hell but I have finally, finally found it. This is, by all means, my dream climate. This is not a a joke. Rate and discuss if you please.

I’ve actually heard they have insane winds which might bring it down but I’m not worrying about that right now.

Reason for it being my dream climate: TONS of both rain and snow (200 inches of rain, 250 inches of snow), super cloudy, and it never gets hot. This is my favorite.

Preparing for Fs all around

I have to say, it's pretty close to a dream climate to me. Strong B from me!

Love cold and snowy, gray days, rain and wind doesn't bother me. I am even fine with the Summer and Winter solstice.

Pretty much all of southern coastal Alaska is like that, especially the panhandle where I live.
Usually overcast, cool and abundant precipitation. I love it for the long daylight and warmest
months. Summer is fantastic. However, would rather be in the wet part of Hawaii during the dark season.
Keep in mind that the snow doesn’t always
stick around during winter, there will be periods of thawing and rain. Of course, no where in Panhandle has quite that much precipitation except Yakutat is close with both rain and and snow.

This, except I'll be generous enough to give it an F. What saves it from an F- are lack of extreme cold, summers warm enough to support trees and not having the eight-months-long snowpack Norilsk does.

This climate is so disgusting that I'd have to curse repeatedly and mention the names of horrible people to fully explain it.

I'd be surprised if the ground isn't always mushy, or if it can even support any clay soils at all. That's not even talking about the humidity (which I hate hot or cold) and low winter sun. Plus, it most likely has a snowpack despite the high rainfall, so ice would surely be awful. No wonder the whole town is indoors!

Not entirely true. Whittier averages 211 precipitation days a year. Juneau has 222 yet has half the total rainfall.
Same with Ketchikan in SE. They average 155 inches yet have less wet days than Juneau. In Whittier and Ketchikan it can come down real hard. Not quite so much as the heaviest tropical downpours but fairly hard!

Handsome climate, which I therefore award with A+.

Snow and chilling rains with high wind speeds are the healthiest and best weather.

That is why Norway is a very healthy country.
